collaboration, communes case and experience of all of members of our community, teachers, law enforcement, and the affected families will work to make our schools safer, stronger, and more united. that's why we're here today to prevent another sandy hook. we all have to work together to end gun violence. i hope we can continue that conversation today and make our children safer. thank you. >> i would like to thank our leader and co-chair for this honor. we come to this room today from different places and many different backgrounds. the last few months we have seen too many of our fellow countrymen gunned down in the streets. i represent camden, new jersey. a city of 80,000 have had 70 homicides this year. we see our neighbors die in shopping malls, movie theaters, college campuses and horrifically 31 days ago an elementary school. we are bonded together by one common conviction and that is our belief that is not inevitable. we can make choices to stop this from happening again. we believe that consistent with good medical practice, we can improve our mental health system so those who are
inability as a civil society, a nation that takes such great pride in the rule of law, to in some way come to grips with the mace of of guns and violence -- with the place of guns and violence. and before we begin this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and
of the bill, the coming law. >> jay carney made this offer on behalf of the president if congress continues to find it impossible to do its job. >> he believes we ought to do this for longer periods of time. he believes that if it is difficult for congress, they can turn it over to him. he will take the heat for making sure that we pay our bills because it is the responsible and right thing to do. so if that were what transpires after this next round, if congress produces something he would welcome that. >> joining me now, republican congressman mo brooks, and jared bernstein. congressman brooks, what the -- what is going on here? >> well, you have democracy at work. you have a very serious threat to our future with these unsustainable deficits. we are in perhaps the fifth consecutive trillion dollar deficit year, total accumulated debt of $16 trillion, no end in sight. so you have a long-term threat we have to focus our eyes on. but we also have a short-term threat, that is raising the debt ceiling or not. >> are you going to vote for the boehner plan? >> no. >> why not? >> well, let's get
before you can run. legitimate tors should work on a series of realistic incrementle laws that would rebuild competent and trust. this morning from the "new york times." and so the question this morning -- just what should the role be of government in solving america's problems. eisenhower's address referred to the military complex. since we have had ten presidents since he delivered those words from the white house just three days before john f. kennedy was sworn in. here is a portion from his farewell address. >> crisis there will continue to be. in meeting them whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a temptation to feel could become to all our difficulties. development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture. a dramatic expansion in research. these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel. but each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration, the need to maintain balance in and among national programs. balance between the private and the public economy,
such great pride in the rule of law to have someone come to grips with the place of guns and violence. before we begin this discussioncomes out to you on personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, as in denver colorado on personal business and i was driving to the denver suburbs and i passed into oruro, colorado and saw the sign that to myself, as journalists often do, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago and a young man now appears to be utterly deranged, went to the theater and began shooting people with an assault weapon. and it went away. it is not part of a presidential debate, not part of the daily journalistic diet. so that wednesday night, i e-mailed the reduced their of the "meet the press" show coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that needs to be thinking about. and i said you should put shooting at the top of the list. we've been through oruro, the sikh temple, the shopping mall. think about this. this is before we got to sandy hook in it. we had a time of absolute carnage in america t
years. and the senate has not. and there is a law that says we are to adopt a budget. chairman ryan pointed out that the president's folks have said they will not adhere to the law again this year. my recollection is they were late last year. i think they submitted a budget but my recollection is they were late last year. i may be not correct on that. >> they submitted a budget. they missed the deadline three out of four times. >> ok. herethink what's important is we are the lawmakers, and it's important that we be good role models for the rest of the country. and we certainly are cast gaited on an individual level when we break the law. some people have. some inadvertently. some purposefully. but i think it's very important that we follow the law. so i think it's important that we continue to point this out to the american people and i'm very pleased that we're going to be doing this. raising the debt ceiling is a very, very serious issue. and we don't do this lightly. nobody i think should do it lightly. i believe that the way we are going to be doing this will help us move forwar
use if that use was generally recognized as being a sporting purpose. it was already the law, but he took executive action under that law to ban the importation of specific weapons. the gun control act of 1968 that gave him that power was passed in the wake of robert kennedy and martin luther king. and it is what gave george h.w. bush to take that executive action that he took banning some rifles. in 1989, two months after that schoolyard massacri in stockton, california. years later, president clinton followed in his footsteps. president clinton, in 1998, took executive action as president to ban the importation of more than 50 different kinds of semiautomatic assault weapons. and it was in addition to the assault weapons ban. this was further action taken by the president alone in 1998. he took executive action to ban the importation of certain kinds of guns. today, president obama became yet another modern president to use his executive authority for reform of gun-related laws. president obama did not use his authority as his predecessors did. and i mean that in this sense. none o
and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of bill becoming law. >> so it appears that pressure is building on senator reid to act. meanwhile late today, sources say speaker boehner told g.o.p. members behind closed dors the house budget chairman paul ryan is working on a budget plan that would balance within ten years. boehner says he applauds that goal and shares it. >> bret: mike emanuel live on the hill. thank you. more than 24 hours after promising to respond to the threat of climate change, president obama has something else to respond to tonight. nebraska's governor approved a new route for the controversial keystone oil pipeline to put the ball scarily in the president's court. chief white house correspondent ed henry tells us that is one issue getting a second look tonight. >> attending a prayer service after a long night of celebrating the start of his second term. ♪ ♪ >> president obama woke up to a flood of cheerleading headlines about how he offered an aggressive liberal vision to act on major issues. >> we will respond to the threat of climate cha
, megan's law and the man who tortured and killed her, his parents tried to get help for him and they couldn't. and a lot of this goes back to the 1980's, when we looked at rights for the mentally ill and i believe they should have rights to refuse treatment, but if you suffer from an illness -- i'll give you example, most of the mentally ills do not pose a hazard to people but certain elements do. and you cannot make these people take their medication and then we shut down the institutions and put people out in the street for community care. and these are the types of people that when they get into delusions, they are not going to come in and seek that care. so you have problems. you also have problems -- the school shooting in newtown is terrible, but i would like to know what went on in that home. what went on with mr. lanza and his mother? there's not enough information out there yet. and we're going off proposing this ban and that ban and whatever, all i see is that mental illness and care for the mentally ill seems to be getting short changed. the other point i'm concer
be an entrepreneur. passing so many laws and regulations and taxes that they kill the start up businesses in ways that are crazy. >> i have to jump in. thank you so much for talking about entrepreneurship. you were there, you were a part of that. there has been so much destruction to the assistance program. talk about rules and regulations. those are things your administration, when you were the speaker of the house, so many of those types of rules and regulations were built into the program, so much that they have not responded to the recession. it is only able to reach about 30% of the children who are poor in this country. an incredible increase in child poverty been. micro finance would may be a great way to insert into the system. if a woman is receiving cash assistance or food stamps and she happens to, may be working on the side doing hair and nails, housekeeping, child care. fantastic things. that $50 or $100 she makes on the weekend, god forbid she reported to the case manager because she would be criminalized for something that would be celebrated in this country. [applause] >> i agree
to unilaterally introduce new laws without the legislative branch. a total of 23 executive actions were signed and immediately set into motion that could directly impact your right to keep and bear arms, and included on the list so-called clarification urging doctors and other health care providers to contact authorities if they arbitrarily deem a patient is a threat to themselves or others. so much for medical privacy in america. beyond that, and even more concerning, were the legislative proposals outlined by the president, calling for a universal background check, something that critics say could lead to a national gun owners data base and he wants the assault weapon ban reinstated and ten limit magazine, and a new gun trafficking law penalizing those who help criminals obtain firearms. what made it more shameful, it happened with children looking on as the president exploited their presence for for his own political purposes. >> and ask your member of congress if they support universal background checks to keep the guns out of their wrong. ask them if they support an assault on ban weapons
weapons ban that of course lapsed the in 2004, and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne la pierre of the nra on this program very hard when this initially came up, i challenge you as well with the question of is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records who don't care if they are caught and usually want to die. these are adult facts that don't intrude on the childish world of white house policy making. he notes adam lanza in newtown, his own mother of course passed a background check. >> right. here's the bottom line. these laws are not always perfect. and you'll always find certain exceptions. but they make a huge difference. every major person who has studied the brady law, which is the mo
else under the law. >> and the president takes the first step towards challenging congress on climate change. >> we, the people, still believe that our obligations as americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> before leaving the capitol, president obama pauses to absorb the moment. >> take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> what about women's rights? on today's 40th abc anniversary of roe v. wade our exclusive nbc news-wall street journal polls shows for the first time a majority of americans say abortion should be legal in almost all cases. candid camera. the girls snap pictures. they dance. they laugh it up during the parade. >>> nbc's al roker scores a thumbs up from president obama. and gets a running handshake from vice president biden. >> mr. pres
to jump in. >> i have problems having spent 30 years in law enforcement. i do have a problem with that and i think i was discussed in mexico in the last session of congress and it didn't really get anywhere. i think they know what the consequences are but the drug abuse. it seemed to me, decriminalizing drugs, [inaudible] that's my personal opinion. >> the information i've seen, although you hear these arguments about decriminalizing, on the other hand these to more and more different drugs and i think -- is not the right direction we would like to take. >> i think mexico does not have the infrastructure to deal with the jocks. in order for that to happen, you would have medical attention and infrastructure that needs to deal with the people addicted to drugs and the effects that create. i think, from my cave, my very own dave to deal not a clear socially was such a big step. there are some who believe and it may believe that what create -- it would stop the violence. i don't think you will do it. not from my death. the country has the backdrop to do with addictions. >> next
clinton and delaware attorney general bo biden. >> gregg: thank you. >> heather: law enforcement is hard at work making sure that monday's inauguration goes off without a hitch. metropolitan police department teaming up with national guard members from all across the country to manage those crowds and all that traffic along the parade route. >> short period, 36 hours, 6,000 national guard will be welcome to d.c. at one of three reception locations. >> i've never been to an inauguration. it's really an honor to have the opportunity to come down. >> to make sure that everybody has a safe and enjoyable time. >> they have been granted temporary arrest powers and help with security if needed. be sure to stick with fox news channel with complete coverage tomorrow. tomorrow we will have the official swearing in for president obama and tune in monday 11:00 a.m. eastern for inauguration 2013. bret baier and megyn kelly and head over to foxnews.com, get answers to your questions and watch videos streaming online. >> gregg: big changes are coming to security checkpoints at airports. tsa is removing
amendment make this a safer country? fox news poll ask if they believe that gun laws help stop acts like the newtown shooting? 22 percent said yes. tougher laws can help. 71 percent said no people will still find ways to get and use firearms. does the president's action hit the mark? emily miller joining us from washington. good morning, emily. >> good morning, tucker. >> tucker: is there any evidence that gun control in the united states, a country with a second amendment. you can't ban this tfps not helping. it doesn't change anything. that was banning certain cosmetic features which is what the president wants to do again. there is absolutely no evidence at all that gun laws decrease crime and the reason is simple. the bad guys are already disregarding the laws. they know there are laws against robbery and know there is laws against murder. ownership of a gun is not going to stop them from doing anything. >> tucker: to keep this in perspective from so-called assault rifles, there are about 310 million people in this country. 2011 there were 330 deaths from rifles, and that includes su
majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who should not have them. the other constituency that is important is law enforcement. they are unanimous in their support for assault weapon ban for capacity magazines and closing loopholes. host: gun control could split obama, reid. they say backing restrictions could hurt the senate leader and other democrats. this story points out that for some democrats up for reelection, supporting the president will be treacherous terrain. they go on to talk about facing reelection battles in states where gun control is politically unpopular making potential votes on the proposals problematic. what might the strategy be at your organiza
.s. needs to be done with force not with words as it regards jungle law the rule of its survival. what? the country's belligerent stance is one more issue on the president's full foreign policy plate, and it's going to be a concern for john kerry if he's confirmed secretary of state as he's very likely to be, increasingly likely, as a matter of fact. he got a very warm welcome from both sides of the hearing at his confirmation hearings in the senate today. >> the friendship has endured i believe it is based in myture respect. some observers have attributed that respect to the fact that when we were much younger nicer and better looking men than we are now senator kerry and i spent some time at the navy's behest in a certain southeast asian country in less pleasant circumstances than we're accustomed to in the united states senate. >> john is the right choice. and i urge his speedy confirmation. >> it's john john mccain so nice. much better reception than clinton herds got yesterday during the testimony of the bengahzi attacks. but it wasn't all warm and fuzzy. senator rob johnson who w
. >>> the federal court of appeals has spoken in indiana law from banning social networks is deemed unconstitutional. the court ruled indiana, the state, went too far in banning creeps from using facebooks and other sites that allows minors saying it unreasonably restricted their first amendment rights. they noted that, quote, the indiana law targeted more activity than the evil it seeks to address. indiana's attorney general does does -- doesn't know if the state will appeal, but says it is outweighed convicted sex offenders to troll social media for information. meanwhile, this is is still illegal. >> that's why the internet is invented, for dogs. it was for dogs that deserved it. you are a libertarian. >> can we start this show over again? i miss pronounced moynihan's name. >> i have only been on the show a hundred times. you are a dad so you have no problem with sex offenders to have the potential to contact a child on a social network. that doesn't make sense to me. in a way that makes you an awful father and perhaps your children should be taken away. >> i haven't even answered yet. you did in
why. martha: new reaction to president obama's sweeping plan to overhaul gun laws. the nra is calling this, quote, the fight of the century. that group's president will be with us in "america's newsroom." that is coming up. some republican lawmakers are gearing up for the defense of the second amendment. >> there are several of the executive orders that appear as if he is writing new law. that can not happen. we struck down once, the court struck clinton down for trying this and i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing. we're going to make sure that it doesn't happen. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. my i feel so much younger.tly changed my life - my husband has his confidence back. and he can enjoy the laughter of our grandkids again. i can have fun with my friends again. feeling i
law that was passed in '94 and expired in 2004, is leading today's charge. she, along with other senators, even displaying an array of assault weapons that would be banned and they brought props. senator feinstein arguing why is she believes there's a need for this ban. >> since the last assault weapons ban expired in 2004, and incidentally, in the ten years it was in place, no one took it to court. more than 350 people have been killed with assault weapons. >> megyn: no one took it to court because the nra at the time felt the supreme court was not leaning their way on these types of issues. the looks different it the court back then and the court today, there's question, if the bill would pass, there's question whether it would pass in the democratically controlled senate and whether the nra would feel the same. and on far-reaching rules of this legislation and the hurdles that have be to be cleared before this thing can pass. we're also hearing new questions today about secretary of state hillary clinton's highly charged testimony yesterday about the deadly terror attack on ou
, the house pass a budget, senate pass a budget, as required by law and on time. so as i've talked to them, i feel pretty good about the constitutionality of the 27th amendment and how it applies to this. i would, if i could, make a couple other comments. i do think it's interesting in the spirit of bipartisanship, as you've pointed out, this was a piece of legislation for the most part pretty much mirrors what was introduced in the 112th with -- by a democrat with several other democratic co-sponsors as well as republicans here. i sort of feel like this is an effort at a bipartisan -- bipartisanship. i know sandy had to leave. we were talking about the ratings agencies and what debate. reading the executive management report from the ratings agency that also pointed to the congress that one of the reasons -- huge reason for the downgrade, they didn't feel that the congress had the political will to address the spending crisis that we are in either. so that was also a big part of the downgrade of our credit rating. now i think, you know, we are trying to exercise the political will to address
growing a criminal offense under current -- international law. while coca-cola was guaranteed the right to use it as a flavoring in their own product, indigenous peoples across the andes are told that the traditional practice of coca leaf chilling and drinking tea would no longer be tolerated by the international community, and it is important to point out that the u.s. was the architect of these treaties commensurately have support from other countries. today they have key allies in their effort to maintain the treaties such as russia, japan, sweden. really is a u.s. estimate. so coke go along with cannabis and opium became the main targets of the 1961 convention. this historical error, as i like to college, was basically justified by the 1950 report of the commission of inquiry on the coca leaf which is a totally racist document. it is totally, totally racist. has absolutely no scientific evidence. you can find it on the web now. you will be out raised as you read, it is still the basis for the international drug control conventions treatment of coca. subsequent to that in the 1990's
in the first three months of pregnancy. the 7-2 ruling will likely lead to drastic overhall of laws on abortion. >> michael: it was 40 years ago that they legalized abortion in this country. the harris poll taken at that time found 52% of americans supported the decision. a wall street journal nbc poll found that 54% of americans believe women should be able to have an abortion. despite the widespread public support many lawmakers are doing whatever they can to take away a woman's right to choose. coming away from washington, d.c. is kay shepherd with mother jones magazine, kate, thank you for coming inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> michael: kate, we read so much about mississippi. mississippi used to have 14 abortion clinics. now it just has one. how in 2013 does something like that happen? >> well, you know, it's a cumulative effect. it's in the early 80s that it had 14, but now the state has put on restriction after restriction. they have rules that you can't have an abortion after 16 weeks you have to have permission if you're a minor. it forced clinics to close. now you h
after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> we're going to continue to try to work to end abortion
over a long period of time happen at once. president obama sat down, page and protection act into law and health care reform was done. when we look at deficit reduction, it's four or five deals, each one in endless, horrible slog through the d.c. marshes. in the second term the two things we are going to see, it does not look like we are going to see much more on jobs. the white house is not fighting hard. they have not made infrastructure a condition of moving forward. we got $600 billion in the fiscal cliff. republicans are going to make a decision to include revenues or whether or not they are going to make a decision that is better to do no more reduction over the second term. if it is what it takes to keep the president from getting more tax revenues. >> let me ask this. what i hear you saying is deficit reduction. it seems as though we have a president who is legitimately a deficit hawk. he believes the deficit is a problem and deficit reduction is a priority. when you look at the approval rate of americans on handling of the economy, it's split half and half with support for th
government in his negotiations at the u.n. to codify the laws against coca. what was happening, was in constant medication with the company primary for the vice president, vice pays, who really got to feel the relationship between them over time. they just had a really interesting parlay between each other. so that's the beginning of an overview of the book. i want to pass the mic back and forth and i think we're going to have questions for each other. but that's the beginning. >> at evening. i'm at the super policies were around the trip policy there. i was once asked to check to a group of high school students in the literature resume and background and came up with the topic and you had to speak to the topic. this being a high school dance, they wanted here but sex, drugs and international relations. at that home-equity type these things together. it didn't dawn on me until the last minute and i realized the way to tell that story was through the story of columbus, who i considered the granddaddy of international drug traffickers. how you see the world depends where you say,
